A few years ago I bought some of the original Zinger Winges FT'ers for training around the place. This week I ordered the upgrade kit to redo the release mechanism and added TTG3 releases. The upgrade kit works pretty well and is fairly easy to do. A couple of gotcha's though. First the screws they provide to bolt through the new release were too short, I had to go get some 2.5 inches long instead of the 2 inch ones they provided. I tried to reduce the washers between the two outside plates to make up for the short screws but it put too much pressure on the sides of the release that it wouldn't fire. Other than that the upgrade was pretty straightforward, took about 40 minutes each and works great. If you got the older release, its well worth upgrading them. The release is much more reliable.
